Henry Looking for Trouble

My name is Henry the Adequate, and I am a superhero.

Today I am field testing some modifications to my rocket-launcher. Fitting a proper blast shield turned out to be impractical on account of the size and weight of such devices. Instead I have managed to retrofit an airbag that I found just lying around in some guy's car. Perfect. And no doubt I will soon find an evil supervillain to try it out on.

Ah ha! There is an evil denizen of the night. I release the safety, prime the launcher, and sight on the foul creature so quickly that it barely has time to cross the street and wander slowly into a parking lot. But no, it is just a cat. Damn.

Ah ha! Now I have really found an evil minion of chaos! But no, it is just a dog.

Ah ha! Plastic bag.

Ah ha! Tree.

But wait! What could that be in the tree?! Oh, just a bird.

I think that I may have spotted some kind of evil harpie, or possibly a herd of rampaging cyber-elephants, a short way down the road, behind the gang of guys in ski masks with shotguns, but it turns out to be just a kid on a bike.

I move on, determined to find a suitable foe, no matter where the path takes me, or how long I must search these lonely streets. As it turns out the path takes me to The Seediest Bar in Seedsville. I do not want to go in and have, say, one or two drinks, but no doubt some kind of super-sixth-sense has brought me to this place, so venture forth I must. I have several drinks.


"You wanna see my rocket launcher?"


"You wanna see my rocket laucher?"

"Sure, baby."

I show her my rocket launcher. **SLAP**

People are weird.

You should be careful what you drink young man, a small sherry is more than enough.

Thanks for stopping by. Henry did try some Sherry. In fact she was one of the ones doing the slapping.


Henry does not kill. Henry cleanses with his beautiful fires.
